Event Description: 

The Trump Administration’s new immigration policy is to forcibly and systematically separate children from their parents when they show up at the border without documents, even if they came seeking asylum from certain death in their home countries. For those children who are already in the country, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recently stated that schools can report undocumented students to immigration-enforcement officers.

Waltham Immigrant Solidarity Committee calls for an immediate end to these inhumane policies and for the protection of these vulnerable young people.  Please join WISC for this vigil and bring a sign showing your support for immigrant youth and opposition to the brutal policies that target them.
